It's free- what have you got to lose? That was what I was thinking when I came across Footprints on tripadvisor. I'm extremely glad I went on the 2h walking tour. Our guide, Fred, intertwined humour with history and captivated the audience. Even the rain didn't get him down, and he was very patient and polite with the audience, waiting... More

If you care about learning interesting stuff about Oxford and do not have any time to waste: don't do it!!!! I did it on Saturday with Tom as a guide. I learnt nothing because there was 0 information. It was embarrassing. Even without a book I would have learnt more in 2 two hours on my own. And with this... More

A nice tour to walk around the grounds, free to tip if you feel like it. The atmosphere created during the tour was ok at first but then it got crowded and we lost interest. Not all guides are that knowledgeable. Most of them give their own opinion and don’t go deeply in the history or the facts. They have... More

We went on the 2hr walking tour of Oxford in the morning of 22 Feb 2015. Our guide Joel was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and gave a good mix of history, anecdotes and facts. We particularly enjoyed hearing about the alumni of oxford and the inter collage rivalries and rituals. The tour took in the main oxford highlights and was a great... More

I was part of the 11am footprints tour of Oxford on a Saturday, 21st Feb. Wandering around a foreign town solo is kinda daunting and I was on a time limit so why not join a tour. I had heard of these free walking tours and was deciding between a free tour or a payable one and I don't regret... More

Not at all old graduated previous term and was fantastically humerous and knowledgable, we have paid a set price for so much less, well worth £20

It was nice this was a free tour, keep in mind it does take the full 2 hours. Tom was our tour guide, and while he feigned enthusiasm of showing the group around, he was fairly knowledgeable about the grounds and campus. Others had questions about the various colleges and unfortunately he was not able to give a satisfactory answer.... More

Joel, our guide had such a lot of knowledge, pride, hummor and great delivery. We would never have 1. Found everywhere in a short space of time and 2.Really had the insight as to the history of the buildings. Worth every penny of the tip

Honestly, I was doubting between taking a free or payable tour. Fortunately I did take Footprints!! Joel took us all around Oxford, with a lot of enthusiasm, explained everything, made jokes, was clear and loud.. You will not regret it ,
